hey how are you

what year & model mazda

what is the mileage on it ?

have you checked fluid on transmission ? has it been serviced

any check engine light on ?

Most likely a sticking solenoid in valve body , but we need to scan the TCM ( trans control module and Retrieve some fault code ,so we can narrow it down

did this problem suddenly happened or we had slippage when taking off or changing gear going down the road

Please let me know

Thank You
